Quoted in a post by canonist, Edward Peters, David Carlin, former majority leader of the Rhode Island senate, in speaking of a pro-abortion Catholic official observed:

"...while many Catholic constituents disapprove of the official's stance on abortion, they none­theless continue to cast ballots for him. In fact, he sees this voting pattern repeated regularly--not only in Rhode Island but all across America. The net result, he says, is: "The more Catholics a state has, the more likely it will send pro-choicers to Washington, and the fewer Catholics it has, the less likely."

"In the end," Carlin says, "the problem isn't Catholic politicians: It's the Catholic voters."

With local Catholics historically accounting for two-thirds of Guam's abortions, is it any wonder why we have the governor we have?

Recently I heard that a local pastor took a stand during a Sunday homily against the current governor and her veto of the Guam Heartbeat Act. 

According to the report of what the pastor said, the governor should be denied communion and anyone who sees the governor presenting herself for communion should confront the priest who administered the sacrament to her. 

I don't know if the pastor went further and let his congregation know that the real problem "isn't Catholic politicians (but) Catholic voters." It certainly would have been a good opportunity. Maybe next Sunday. And maybe more than just him. 

As a P.S. My personal thought is that over and above the governor's veto of a single bill, the governor's thirty year history of abortion advocacy, and now her public acts as governor to procure abortionists for Guam - even going so far as to get the ACLU to sue ourselves as FOIA'd documents show - is the real basis for excommunication, even if it is not likely to happen. Meanwhile, it is really up to Guam voters to "excommunicate" the pro-aborts from office - something else that is not likely to happen.
